Our first chance to go surfing was on Day 2, along the South Coast at Seven Mile Beach in Gerroa, 130 kms south of Sydney. Seven Mile Beach is considered one of the best learn-to-surf beaches in Australia. So if you’re new to the sport, consider starting here before getting over your head in the big waves.

In Gerroa, we met up with the crew at Surf Camp Australia who took us out for a lesson. It was great to get out to the beach and into the water. Kyle from New Zealand was our token surf expert and the conditions we’re exactly up to his standard, check out his blog for an insider’s perspective.

If you’re a fan of pro surfing then plan your travels to New South Wales in February and take in the Australian Open of Surf or in March for the Surfest competition at Merewether Beach in Newcastle.

So whether you’re a elite surfer, a beginner, or simply like taking in the beach atmosphere at an event, New South Wales has you covered.
